This British poster was the first for a Bond film, and is therefore a highly prized collectors item.

Dr. No was released in 1962 and was the first ever James Bond film. It was directed by Terence Young and stars Sean Connery and Ursula Andress. This hugely popular film series has gone onto make a total of twenty-six films to-date (twenty-five by Eon Productions). This year, Dr. No celebrates its 60th anniversary.
